The ongoing pandemic has forced companies to hold virtual launch events online. Just a few weeks after Apple held an online launch event, now it is Google’s turn. The company will be holding a launch event titled #LaunchNightIn at 11:00 am PT tonight. Google Pixel 5, Pixel 4a 5G, a new Chromecast, and a Nest branded smart speaker are among the few devices that Google will be revealing tonight.
A few hours prior to the launch, Jon Prosser, a notable leaker, has leaked some live images of the Google Pixel 5. The pictures show both the front and the back sides of the smartphone, further confirming the previously leaked images.

As seen in these pictures, the phone appears to be having symmetrical bezels on all four sides at the front. There’s a punch-hole camera on the top-left side of the display. The rear side of the phone looks a bit dull and boring, and the protruding camera setup at the back looks similar to what we’ve seen on many smartphones lately. Thankfully, Google has decided to include a fingerprint scanner on the Pixel 5, which was absent from last year’s Pixel 4 series smartphones. The phone has a fingerprint scanner at the back, which is quite rare for a smartphone at this price these days.
Google Pixel 5: Specifications
The specifications of the smartphone have already been leaked earlier. To recall, the Google Pixel 5 will be powered by Snapdragon 765G mobile platform. The phone will be available in a single memory variant with 8 Gigs of RAM and 128 Gigs of internal storage. It is expected to come with a 6-inch 2340x1080p Full HD+ OLED display, with 90Hz refresh rate and HDR support. A 4,000 mAh battery will be juicing up the smartphone, with 18W fast charging support. Talking about the camera specifications, the phone will have a dual-camera setup at the back, and a single selfie camera at the front. The rear cameras will include a 12MP primary sensor with OIS, and a 16MP wide-angle lens with 107-degree FOV. The front camera will be of 8MP, having an 83-degree FOV. The Pixel 5 smartphone is expected to be priced at EUR629 (approx. $736/ ¥5,000).
